NIDA is pleased to announce that an RFA (Request for Applications) has
been
issued to support drug abuse-related research using microarrays. There
are many
innovative ways in which microarray technology can be applied to drug
abuse
research, including, but not limited to:
1) characterizing expression patterns in neural cells in response to
addictive
drugs
2) profiling the expression of genes involved in drug metabolism
3) identifying unique patterns of gene expression associated with
addiction, the
response to environmental cues that promote relapse, or other drug abuse
behaviors
4) as a tool in the study of behavioral genetics.
NIDA intends to commit approximately $2,000,000 in FY 2000 to fund 
approximately five or six new three-year R01 or R21 grants in response
to this
RFA.
The deadline for submitting a letter of intent is February 28, 2000, and
applications must be received by March 28, 2000. For more information
detailing
the precise application guidelines, please see the complete RFA, at
